Black Ensemble's tribute to Chicago's own music legend Curtis Mayfield is the story of a musical giant who is equally celebrated as a singer, song writer and record producer. From the anthemic music of The Impressions like "We're A Winner," "I'm So Proud," "Choice of Colors" to movie hits like "Super Fly," The Curtis Mayfield Story will bring to vibrant life the rare musical genius that was Curtis Mayfield. Mayfield's timeless music is known and celebrated all over the world, and he is the winner of the Grammy Legend Award (1994), the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award (1995) and a double inductee into both The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1991, 1999) and the Grammy Hall of Fame.

It's All-Right To Have A Good Time: The Story of Curtis Mayfield is running in rep with Chicago's Golden Soul (A 60's Revue). The Story of Curtis Mayfield runs Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 3pm and Sundays at 3pm. Chicago's Golden Soul plays Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm and Saturdays at 8pm. Both shows run through March 30, 2014, at the Black Ensemble Theater Cultural Center, 4450 N. Clark Street.
